Review of C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint No 1138 by genalewis
I got this shade in a pack with 2 other colors (1136 & 1137) when Bath & Body Works was running a holiday promotion last year. I love all the colors in the pack, but 1138 was my hands-down favorite. I initially didn't like it and thought the color was too red for me (I was in my "everything brown or neutral" phase). But one morning I tried this after finishing my full makeup routine, and I was thoroughly impressed! My lips looked glossy and full and VERY rosy, but in a beatiful, natural way. Not to mention I got a refreshing, always-welcome shot of peppermint. It is the perfect compliment to the polished, natural makeup look I wear every day to work.
The formula is not as long-lasting as I would like, but more frequent touchups are a small price to pay for such great-looking lips. The peppermint taste is yummy and sweet, so if you accidentally lick some off, it is rather pleasant. The fragrance is nice as well, and anyone you breathe on will think you just popped a Starlight mint. I almost exclusively wear Mentha Lip Tints as my lipcolor. I wear them with a nude liner when I want to look super-hot, and alone for everyday hotness. :) This is a great product, in any color.
